The last vestiges of the first post-Inquisition Jewish presence in Portugal are found at the extraordinary Jewish cemetery, which has 76 beautiful marble gravestones. The small site also has a tiny museum and recreated synagogue (complete with a reconstructed wedding). Interested parties can ring in advance to arrange a guide. The centre is located north of town, near the Faro hospital; local buses (circuito bus 3) leave from in front of the Eva terminal. Alight at the Rotunda de Bombeiros bus stop and cross the road, the Estrada da Penha.
